Deliverance from People
Have you allowed other people’s opinions of you to hold you back? If you answered “Yes,” you’re not alone. Every day, many people short-change their potential because someone thought they weren’t good enough. Well I have good news: God disagrees with them!
It Never Comes Easily
Have you noticed that no matter how long you’ve been a Christian, walking in love never gets easy? Just as we overcome one level of aggravation, life throws us a more intense level of irritation! But love is something that we must choose to dress in every day.
A busy schedule, fatigue, and boredom can tempt us to cut corners from time to time. The Word of God reminds us, however, that "The eyes of the Lord are in every place" (Proverbs 15:3, New King James Version). Although people may not always notice the extent of our labor, be assured that God always sees.
Have you been in a situation — or met an individual — and thought to yourself, "I don’t know what it is, but something isn’t right"? We may desire to give every situation and person the "benefit of the doubt," but we should listen to God’s whisper.
Release Your Guilt
We all make mistakes – mistakes that we regret, and mistakes that we never seem to let go. And forgiving ourselves can be difficult. Guilt caused David to cry out, "I know about my sins, and I cannot forget my terrible guilt” (Contemporary English Version, Psalm 51:3).
Many people spend their lives trying to become someone that they hope to be — as opposed to the person that they actually are. But contentment (peace of mind; mental and emotional satisfaction) only comes when we stay and flourish in our assigned lane.
